Abstract

The present research focuses on the prehistoric settlement of the Mont Fallère massif (Aosta, N-W Italy) and the reconstruction of its Holocene environmental history. The importance of the relationship between humans and the environment is highlighted by means of a multidisciplinary and diachronic approach. Fieldwork on the Mont Fallère area (Municipality of Saint-Pierre) has been carried out between 2009 and 2013, under the direction of the Soprintendenza per i beni e le attività culturali of the Regione Autonoma Valle d'Aosta and the University of Ferrara. A series of survey campaigns and archaeological excavations have been undertaken along with palaeobotanical and geological investigations thanks to the collaboration of several research institutions. This fieldwork and the following laboratory analyses have allowed the identification of traces connected to the exploitation of this upland territory by the last hunter-gatherers of the Mesolithic period as well as by the first herders during the Neolithic and Copper Age.
